We buy ours at a local garden center. @growitvertical, thanks for the online suggestion!

growitvertical says:

If you have the time you can build your vertical garden from scratch or you can buy an Oregon Breather, hang it on your fence or wall and start planting. It’s about the same size, has grommets for easy hanging, it’s made of a material that allows the roots to get air plus holds some moisture so frequent watering is not required. Find it at verticalgardeningsystems under the category of soft textile pockets, $56.

@The831Z: The idea was to use tropical, epiphytes, that normally grow on trees in the tropics. They don’t have their roots in soil like we tend to manage them. The following year, Jim dismantled the plants from the board and reused them in another design.

The831Z says:

i have seen other projects like this, as like the other people dont think about the plant in long term, roots will come out and will get root rot….smashing the roots can damage the plant and kill it, not cool….first think of what your doing before doing it, so you dont come out looking dumb and stupid, big fail in my opining lol

wildenside says:
